c Works for LA. By MIKE RATHET Associated Press Sports Writer The Los Angeles Dodgers are fit it again, winning 'em by one tun on the double. The pitching hasn't been quite as overpowering as last year end the speed hasn't been as overwhelming, but the Dodgers suddenly have reverted to last year's pennant winning formula in running up a five-game winning streak. The latest was a come-from- ibehind 7-6 victory over Atlanta Friday night on Jim Lefebvre's tie-breaking double in the eighth inning. It their fifth gave the Dodgers inning later, Davenport made Maricbal's job a snap by hitting his grand slam. Stargell and Mazeroski proved too much for the Mets to handle, targell collected two homers — for a total of 21 — two doubles and two singles while Mazeroski collected a grand slam homer among four hits. Stargell's two run - run double keyed a three-run uprising in the first inning of the opener, and he broke a 1-1 tie in the third inning of the nightcap with a three-run homer. Richie Allen put the Phillies successive one-run I ahead to stay, snapping a 1-1 tie Victory and a 19-8 record over all in games decided by thai margin. Tftat's a .667 percentage in the tight ones, compared to last year's .533 when the Dodgers topped the National League with 32 one-run triumphs en route to the World Series. The only trouble is they're still in third place. Despite the the Dodgers winning streak, remained four games behind the front-running San Francisco Giants, who rode Juan Marichal's three-hit pitching and a pinch-hit grand slam homer, by .Jim Davenport to a 72 victory over Cincinnati. Second-place Pittsburgh closed to'.within two games of the top as Willie Stargell and Bill." Mazeroski each drove in seven runs in a 10-2, 9-2 doubleheader sweep of the New York Mefs. Phiadelphia edged the Chicago Cubs 54 and Houston Chipped St. Louis 6-1. Don Sutton started for the Dodgers and struck out the side In the first and third innings. But "in between he allowed the Braves to pull out to a 4-0 lead. The Dodgers moved in front with a six-rim third inning explosion, but the Braves again tied'the score, 6-6, in the sixth inning. Then, in the eighth, Wes Parker singled and Lefebvre (doubled. That settled it. Marichal posted his 14th victory — one less than major league leading Sandy Koufax of the Dodgers — and scored the run; that put the Giants ahead to Stay 3-2 in the fifth inning. Marichal swung and missed at a third strike in the fifth but raced to first when the pitch by was wild. He sped around to third on another wid pitch by Hank Fischer and trotted home on Tito Fuentes' double. One * * i with a three-run homer in the fifth inning. Johnny Callison chipped in with three doubles and scored three runs, coming home twice in singles by Tony Taylor. John Bateman's two-run homer off Bob Gibson in the first inning gave the Astros enough to beat the Cardinals. Bob Bruce, who came into the game with a 1-6 record, allowed only two St. Louis hits before giving way to reliever Claude Raymond in the ninth. By DICK COUCH Associated Press Sports Writer Sam Mele knows he can't ex- :ect any help from two of the American League's hottest hitters next Tuesday at St. Louis. And the All-Star pilot isn't sure how much help to count on Tom his batting practice pitch- *r Mickey Marite and Boog Powell will miss the Ail-Star classic despite their current slugging rampages, but Lew {rausse will be there — to toss batting practice for the American League stars. Krausse, a former $100,000 bonus baby who failed in three previous 'trials with the Athletics, tamed ttie Cleveland Indians 2-1 Friday night, allowing only four hits in eight innings while boosting his season record to 6-4 and lowering his earned run average to 2.76. It was the third victory for Krausse in his last four decisions, giving him a 10-15 career mark since breaking in as an 18- year-old in 1961. Meanwhile, Mantfle smashed ;wo home runs for a tola of 11 n Ms last 14 games as New York divided a doubleheader with Washington — losing 7-6 and winning 7-5 — and Powell belted a ninth inning homer that lifted first place Baltimore past California 2-1 and tied him with teammate Brooks Robinson for the major league RBI lead at 67. Neither Powell nor Mantle were selected by Mele for the All-Star squad. Powell finished third in the first base voting — behind Boston rookie George Scott and Detroit's Norm Cash. Mantle was No. 6 in the outfield balloting but reportedly requested that he be bypassed for the first time since 1953. * * * Mele's Minnesota Twin; whipped Detroit 6-1 behind All Star lefthander Jim Kaat and the Boston Red Sox swept a doubleheader from Chicago 8-: and 5-1 in ofier AL games. Krausse lost a bid for his third shutout of the season when Larry Brown singled in the sev enth, moved up two bases on a wild pitch and scored on Joe Azcue's sacrifice fly. The A's, limited to one hit for seven innings by Sonny Siebert pulled out their fifth victory in the last six games with two runs in the eighth. Roger Repoz knocked them in with a pop fly double after singles by Joe N sek, hitting for Krausse, and Bert Campaneris set the stage. The loss was the sixth straight for Cleveland. Powell led off the ninth against southpaw Marcelino Lopez with his 19th homer, snapping a 1-1 tie. Lopez had jlanked the Orioles on one hit jntil the eighth, when they tied t on singles by Sam Bowens, Dave Johnson and Paul Blair. The victory increased the Orioles' league lead over second place Detroit to 8Ms games. Mantle connected in each game for a season total o£ 18 but was forced to quit the nightcap in the fifth inning after pulling a hamstring muscle in his left leg, He is expected to be out of action two weeks. Ray Baker's two-run single in the seventh brought New York from behind in the second game after Frank Howard's sacrifice fly broke a 6-6 standoff in the sixth inning of the opener. Kaat scattered six hits for his llth victory against six losses and smacked a two-run homer to cap a five-run Minnesota burst in the fourth inning. Jim Lonborg pitched a six- nitter for his first complete * * # game victory of the year and Lee Stange checked the White Sox on five hits in the nightcap as Boston completed its sweep. Held to one hit through seven innings by Bruce Howard, the Red Sox sewed up the second game with four runs in the eighth-two on Tony Conigliaro's triple. Conigliaro also rapped a run-scoring single and Joe Foy homered behind Lonborg in the operner. MAJOR LEAGUE STANDINGS Mantle, on a Tear, Tears His Leg Muscle By MURRAY CHASS Associated Press Sports Writer NEW YORK (AP - The New York Yankees have just enjoyed the best two. weeks of Mickey Mantle's season, and now they face the possibility of doing •without him for the next two weeks. Mantle, who has been plagued with leg trouble throughout his 16-year career, tore an outer hamstring muscle in his left leg Friday night and said : "This will take two weeks, I imagine, from the way they'vei reacted before." j Before being forced out of the second game in the fifth inning, Mantle lashed five hits, including two homers, in eight at-bats in a doubleheader with Washington. * * * His first-game homer was in vain as the Senators won 7-6, but his 18th of the season in the nightcap helped the Yankees to a 7-5 victory. Mantle's homers gave him 11 in the last 14 games, during which time he collected 18 hits in 46 at-bats for a .409 average. The hitting spurt shot his average up 27 points, from .254 to .281. The ace center fielder, who was not selected for the All-Star Game for the first time since 1953, tore the muscle while rounding first on a hit to left field in the fifth inning. "I looked at Wally (first base coach Wally Moses, and .he gave me the go sign like I might be able to get three," Mantle explained. "I took a long step and hit the bag with my left foot and when I pushed off, I felt it tear. "I saw the ball bounce awa; from the outfielder, but couldn't do anything about it. "It's not sore yet, but it'll be very sore tomorrow. I won't be able to do this," he added, bending his leg. San Fran. . Pittsburgh . Los Angeles Philadel. Houston . St. Louis Atlanta .

Moments later, 'he was swing- ing'a single bat, fishing for one of Garner's curve balls. He didn't catch anything and four pitches later was back on the bench, grumbling about the Oakville appellation. Someone sent word to the press box that the Memphians didn't want to be called Oak- villians, or Coca Colians but wanted to be known as the Sprites. The PA announcer sensibly settled for Memphis. Carner and a handful of hot hitters, backed by the Cason' usually reliable fielding accounted for last night's win. Carner gave up six hits, but fanned 16 with his assortment of curve balls. Blytheville got 12 hits and this damage was compounded by four official Oakville errors. Pat Harper, the Monette lad who is filling in for injured Sam Singleton at catcher, continue! his torrid bat work. He hac three hits last night. Bobby George, of Luxora, also got three for the Casons. Stan Williams, who's been hit ;ing everything, picked up two hits as did Jim Wagner.

"During my absence, Jim Dixon also has been helping out and he'll be in charge of the boys tomorrow. "I hope to get out there and see a few innings tomorrow," Williams said.
